UPDATE: 4:30 Twitter has shut down Trump for 12 hours and more.

UPDATE: 4:00 The House and Senate will resume as soon as the Capitol building is secured.

UPDATE: 2:15 Flash bangs and tear gas used.

UPDATE: 1:45 The police opened the gates to them.

UPDATE 1:30: Trump has released this bullshit video, now deleted.

And this is something new:

UPDATE 12:00 PM: CSPAN live stream added.


CURRENT UPDATE: 11:21 AM PST: Pence has been rushed from the Senate Chamber.

Here's another view:


After Trump fired up the foot soldiers, they are trying to storm the Capitol buildings to carry out their sedition in the name of Their Hero.

Here are some scenes from their violent, seditious behavior. Why they aren't being treated like the Black Lives Matter protesters is beyond me.

There are 4 Capitol buildings and the Library of Congress evacuated at the time of this writing.

Law and order? Not so much.


UPDATE: Capitol is on lockdown.



UPDATE: Sure looks like someone's serious about invoking the Insurrection Act. Why else would they refuse this?
